Sigma APO 150-500mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM ultra-telephoto zoom lens covers a telephoto range up to 500mm and allows photographers to bring the subject close and short perspective with Sigma’s original OS (Optical Stabilizer) function offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower.
Let’s look at how does the Sigma APO 150-500mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM, performs in actual shooting. Images are taken using Sigma APO 150-500mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM and Nikon D700 Full Frame DSLR. 100% sample shot is inlcuded for each photo.
The focal length is 150mm to 500mm as Nikon is a Full Frame with 1x Crop Factor.
This is currently one of the most affordable Super-Telephoto lens by Nikon. If this lens was announced 8 years ago, I will not pay any attention at all because at then DSLRs’ ISO1600 was mostly a marketing strategy and was only good for Black and White prints. These days, for amateur photographers, f5.6 coupled with any midrange DSLRs’ ISO3200 or even ISO6400, one will be able to get a decent shutter speed for wildlife or sports photography.
